heard this shakedown on sirius outside pensacola in the old rental car. figured it was sort of a disco-era version and went lookin' for it in 79/80. this is it i am certain--nice.

Subject: Killer Soundboard of Set 2
The second set is the shit...awesome Shakedown and Passenger burns with intensity. I love the channel separation of the drummers...check it out with headphones. Fall 79 tour kicks ass!

This is one must listen to Charlie show... the 2nd set is unreal, and the crispness of everthing is music to your ears. Play this shakedown street loud and do Jerry proud. Thanks for this show!...

One of my favorite 'old" bootlegs. Until Charlie got a hold of it and made it my favorite show of all. A must have in my opinion.

Subject: Shakedown 79
Yes! I've been searching for this show. Stream shakedown street right now!! It is by far the funkiest I've ever heard the grateful dead play. Now I know why Brent Mydland was chosen at this point in time. He gets down on the Clavinet and Rhodes on Shakedown. AWESOME!!!!!

Cpt. Doubledose and I both agree, this show is The Shit.
And again, Thank you Much Charlie...

Subject: Phil space jam
I agree that second set is pretty hot. The shakedown is amazingly funky and has a great jam. The electronics that Phil did that night (I was there) shook your organs inside your body. He also conjures up a pretty demented set of bass chords; like some kind of horrifying alien communication. This is a great quality tape.

The Stella was a nice way to come out of space. Its a good version but not stellar. Then the set turns to the usual Bobby rock-out which I usually shut off.

Subject: Charlie Miller = G-D
Charlie Miller is fucking the shit. Everything he touches is gold. Download anything upgraded by "charlie miller". It is quite simple.
Reviewer: boobychew - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - October 6, 2005
Subject: holy smokes!
my lord...this one almost brought me to tears...I mean, this second set 100% exemplifies why I was/am/will always be hooked on this band. it is just flawless. pure rock and roll. phil is blistering and jerry simply floats raging the newly intorduced tiger rose...brent is a nice welcome addition, great work tickeling the keys. man, this is one my favorite sets. passenger usually is ahh for me, but this one is sick sick sick. rarely do I give a 5, but I am on this for both recording and show.

Killer sound quality. first half of second set is out of this world. The Eyes is incredible, as is the jam that follows. A massive start to this amazing tour.
Reviewer: StrawRider - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - July 15, 2005
Subject: Thanks VA Slim
Good call! I just upgraded my files for this killer show. The Passenger just burns. Woah! Great set all around. Thumbs up, slim.

Subject: source switches w/ set2
-Don't let the 1st set aud. sound fool you.
The 2nd set switches to a SBD source which is mucho Phatty--better than other sbd listed.(good lovin' is patched w/ aud. also though--no biggie).

Get this 2nd set!!-best i've heard in fall 79.
Shakedown through drums is sssssicko!--killer jammed out versions of all the songs.

This set after one listen gate crashed the ranks of my favorite sets EVER.

-don't sleep on this CharlieMiller upgrade.
